You can’t go wrong bringing home a bottle of wine or two when returning from Madrid — just make sure they’re properly packed to ensure your precious cargo makes it back intact. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to take the delicious cured hams, fresh olives or tortilla española with you, but one sip of red wine may bring all the food memories back.
Outside of food, fine leather goods are great souvenirs and gifts, whether it’s a belt, purse or wallet. And the sheer variety of scarves and capes sold in Madrid — as chic a city as you’ll find — can add a distinct punch to your wardrobe once you’re back in the U.S., and you can be sure that no one will be sporting the same accessories.
